  7. Drive it, enjoy it, worry about the trans when something happens - K's really aren't everything, service history plays a big role.. If it does go pop, just throw in another, or even try find a 5sp STi box with the right ratio to match your rear diff and get back to it. My car has done 147,000k and 4th gear is crunchy, not the end of the world and it still gets a beating when I drive it.

  12. Hey man got it tuned by WRC Developments. Graham was fantastic! Made an awesome 302hp (222kw) on a custom tune with stock intercooler, stock turbo and stock downpipe, up from the 240hp it was. Pretty happy with outcome!

  13. Figured I should start a proper thread on this for entertainment/Education. So Background, I have competed in a few different motorsports and currently loving the Lemons (Now Nazcar) series. I've got my own team and Car we Race in it, But knowing how amazing it is I wanted to get friends involved and the Perfect car popped up for it. As I'm sure you guessed its a GF wagon, Factory Manual, AWD 1.5L Engine. Interior is in amazing condition while the exterior is what you expect, Also someone threw a rock through the rear window so thats on the Parts replacment list It was used as a paddoc

  18. With 200,000 km on the engine the reduction in back pressure will likely allow the exhaust valves to move side to side excessively eventually (almost instantly) falling into the engine and blocking the oil feed pipe causing low oil pressure which would eventually (instantly) destroy the engine completely.

  19. Cheaper/easier/less hassle to sell yours and buy an already turbo model will require engine,gearbox,Diff, hubs, brakes, suspension, full wiring loom out of donor It will then require driveshaft hoops and a cert for the engine swap all up probably $5-10k

  21. If you interested in what the G25 or G30 will do, then Speed Academy has a through video on it with their STI. Links here: They then upgrade to the G30-660 But before most of that, they have a direct comparison on the dyno with another GTX3071R

  22. Well, this has to be potentially one of the most frustrating weekends I've had with Subarus in a VERY long time. warning. LONG read. tl;dr LOTS of things don't go my way. Things broke that shouldn't have broke. I consider insurance fraud. I fixed it after putting in WAY too many stressful hours. I'm definitely not selling it now because it owes me WAY too much money. Also, @SAS Richard, thank you for the help on identifying the issue from over 1200km away Man knows so much about Subarus it's not funny. Kinda is, comical but guru

  23. I use to take my old outback along the sand in NSW and I see there is a club for Brumbies etc up Stockton Beach (above Newcastle) Does anybody take their AWD Subarus up NZ beaches? I mainly want to for fishing along Muriwai and 90 mile beach. Will buy some beach retrieval gear of course as everybody gets stuck once in their lives. I also wonder if there is a set of tyres that would be suited for the sand and for the road? Currently on Potenza's but I imagine next January they will need replacing, already done 55kkm on them.

  24. On the intake mani, directly under the throttle. So there is the crankcase breather port... it has a plastic T section... one side goes to the intake pipe, the other goes to the pcv. Some newer blocks have two crankcase breathers... I just blocked the second one up when I had one of those... I don't know how it is plumbed into the OEM system at all.

  25. The air going into the catch can is not metered air... it can be vented to the atmosphere. The biggest thing to be worried about it is not restricting the flow from the heads and crankcase with small ports on your breather. I use a 4 port can... one port for each breather appropriately sized... and one large breather port on top which I vent under the car. Block the paths back into the intake pipe and remove the pcv and block that port too... though some people would prefer to keep it.

  27. If you're happy to wait a few months, you can get some real world experience off me with my EFR8474. 2.5L sleeved block etc. Shooting for 500kw. All the pre work into choosing all the parts indicate should hit full boost by 3500-4000rpms and pull all the way to 8000rpm at about 30psi on e85.

  28. Was just joking actually... but a noisy exhaust just attracts attention... which personally I don't want. When I first got my current car it was tuned to fart pop and backfire whenever I was off the gas... it was a nightmare and I had to drive around with my hand covering my eyes in shame.

  30. I personally don't have the equipment to quote logs and prove improvements with data, however; from reading this thread I believe I've rectified a fair few niggles I've found. Mainly hesitations when accelerating, not smoothly pulling through the powerband and minor missfires. Fuel has exclusively been NPD 100+ or BP98 where 100 s unavailable Firstly, I sealed the cracked intake box the day I picked up the car. With regular maintenance I've been cleaning the throttle plate for carbon build up. After your suggestion, I checked all header heat shields for security an found a couple bracke

  31. Hey everyone, got a quick question here but am unable to find a definitive answer online so thought I would ask you guys. If i was to turbo a non-turbo 1992 bc5 VZ, how much of the engine/cabin wiring loom would need to be changed? Also is it as easy as unplugging and swapping over a turbo loom? Im guessing it isnt but worth an ask. Thanks all

  32. Given you have have a turbo loom in the RS I'd be inclined to use it, potentially one less certmare? An epic project, but full respect for reviving a BC to glory

  33. Decided gonna sell the V9 STi, 25k. Need to clean it first. Just pre-market here. Launch control,tuned by chris wall @prestige 221kw atw, intake, exhaust, 3mm mani spacers, dw300 fuel pump, defi gauges, PM if interested. Body has had a few trolley dings. 6 Speed, DCCD, 5x114, 143k kms. I have an aprilia rsv4 if I want to go fast. So the leone is plenty of fun.

  34. willpower of the gods, nah. Mans just doesn't know when he's beat lmao Also, the above figures are not yet applied to diff ratio, so if you have a 4.44:1 diff, divide that 510nm by 4.44 giving you roughly 114nm of actual torque.

  36. Sorry yeah I am that guy. I really don't mean it to not be taken seriously I have anxiety with certain things and I guess my car just triggers it when I do silly things that I just think would cost me stress/money. Sorry for you guys having to look at my stupid posts haha. I have been trying to learn more and more about cars so I can hopefully turn a wrench myself one day, which would really help with these worries haha. Thanks for responding tho

  37. It's getting very hard to answer your questions of this nature seriously. (If you are not the guy that is always worried about everything breaking, then I apologise.) No your engine is not going to be damaged from a couple of seconds of shuddering while slowly accelerating in bumper to bumper traffic.

  38. No idea what these type of dyno’s actually show but it isn't the same as most other dyno’s, some uncorrected figure I assume. my Legacy on a dyno torque dyno while making 170kw showed something stupid like 900nm @gotasuby might know.

  39. Whooshing noise is the intake... perfectly normal for any turbo.

  40. I've often wondered the same. Heaps of people seem to have these right now. The light output of most variants is s*** but you can with some, like this set, swap your existing low beam setup into them, minus the auto levelling feature which is my main concern for legality, though no WOF guy will ever notice it's missing.

To change between dark and light themes, simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click theme and select your desired option. Any issues or feedback just mention me

  47. Pod filters and AFMs are not a good match imo... I went through several AFMs because of the pod filter... granted that sometimes it was because I over oiled them... other times because the weather shield was removed and any big splashes of water that hit the poddy would f*** them.
